Flash Flood Watches in the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys

24 Sep 2018, 9:07 am

It has been a wet month in the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Several cities have seen more than a half a foot of rain in September. Much of it has fallen over the last week with moisture from Hurricane Florence. Charleston, West Virginia has already set a record for the month and Lexington, Kentucky is less than 2″ away.

Flash Flood Watches continue from West Virginia to Tennessee. By the middle of this week, another 3″ to 6″ of rain is likely to fall over portions of the region. A stalled front in the Deep South coupled with high humidity from the Gulf of Mexico will produce the excessive rainfall totals.
